1951 Dodge....

Okay, I am going to give this a shot. Like I said in my introduction. My husband has a 1951 Dodge Business Coupe. He bought it a few years ago. He restored the body a little and painted it, he also redone the inside. Now, he is ready to sell it. We had a baby, and he just doesn't have the time for it. He hasn't sold it yet (so he says) because he don't know how or where. So, I got online and found you guys and thought I would give it a shot!

This is all I know about it:
1951 Dodge
All original engine and rims
50,000 original miles
3 on the column
flathead straight 6
fluid drive transmission

The questions he has are:
Where to market it?
How much to ask?
Along, those lines. I thought this was a start and you guys would know where to direct me. I will post pictures of it as soon as I get them downloaded. Thanks for all your help!

You like flathead engines? They may be tough, but I just don't like them. MO.

First you need to surf around to see what the market is bringing. Some Links:

http://www.hemmings.com/index.cfm/fu...assifieds.main

http://browse.collectorcartraderonline.com/adbrowse.php

After you get an idea(if possible) about the value, you can get great exposure on E-bay. Some local markets can be tough for classic sales but a nice car on E-bay usually sells. Put a reserve on it so it won't sell for less then you would take and see what happens. Local Car trader books also have pics and you can sell a car that way. E-bay might not be perfect but it does get great exposure from any places on the globe. Good Luck!! Chris
